Sweet and Sour Meat Loaf Recipe

Publisher Photo
My husband, Bob, and I like basic, hearty meat-and-potatoes meals. This old family favorite really fits the bill…and does so often. Its sweet/sour flavor adds a deliciously different twist to this longtime standby! I hardly ever make "plain" meat loaf anymore. You may not, either, once you've taste this one. —Debbie Haneke, Stafford, Kansas

I used ground turkey instead of ground beef, and added diced carrots and celery. It was amazing.
